Description of the school

Just over a third of pupils in this larger-than-average school are from minority ethnic groups, the largest group being of Indian background. A few pupils who speak Polish are at the early stages of acquiring English.

The proportion of pupils eligible for a free school meal is below the national average. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) are organised in two Reception classes. In addition, a small number are taught with older pupils in Year 1.
